I demand gratuitous use of boobage!!!
2002-01-22 10:26:57 AM  
This worries me...
2002-01-22 10:27:25 AM  
Let the full-scale eBAY whoring begin!!!
2002-01-22 10:28:19 AM  
I'd buy that for a dollar.
2002-01-22 10:29:31 AM  
Mmmm... two bucks, and it only transports matter
2002-01-22 10:31:21 AM  
Ha Ha! I'm winning!
2002-01-22 10:32:21 AM  
pay for work? sure count me in.
2002-01-22 10:32:28 AM  
Jesus, Drew, you could have just asked me. I would have said yes.
2002-01-22 10:33:51 AM  
I don't want to bid for real, but I would be happy to be a shill bidder for you. Just say the word!
2002-01-22 10:33:54 AM  
But that trick never works...

Isn't selling Fark moderator status kind of capitalistic? Shouldn't the moderation of Fark be given to those who labor within its vineyards?
2002-01-22 10:34:44 AM  
If it makes Fark money, go for it.
2002-01-22 10:35:11 AM  
Drew, lets just put our cards on the table.

How much do you want for Fark?
2002-01-22 10:37:51 AM  
(phone rings)Dad...Hello! Baahston...Hi dad it's me I need some cash! Dad...What for now Baahston? Baahston..I want to be a Fark Moderator! Dad...silence then "click"......shiat!!!!
2002-01-22 10:40:03 AM  
Does it come with a special "party" pin we can rub in masturbatory fashion as we arbitrarily delete dissenting opinions?
2002-01-22 10:40:22 AM  
Whatever the winning bid ends up being, I might just double it if you're selling the right to fire the bastard that deleted my posts last week.
2002-01-22 10:40:32 AM  
So how much did Fark cost when it was auctioned for a day?
Anyone? Bueller?
2002-01-22 10:40:37 AM

For sale: become a Fark Forum Troll for a month

No doubt that someone will pay $400 dollars to have the power of the non-deletable troll post.
2002-01-22 10:41:18 AM  
oh yes! just the thing we are waiting for!

another lame dotcommer who buys fark with the PR budget.

If we keep on selling Fark, SA has already won!
2002-01-22 10:42:04 AM  
lets just start a donation fund... i got no prob with that... maybe a sponser link page, with fark image hosting for the Gold mempbers, or some friggin shiat like dat
2002-01-22 10:42:30 AM  
Soooo... How much would I expect to pay to sweep your floors, Drew?...

Is shoe licking optional?...
2002-01-22 10:42:58 AM  
Hmmmm, looks like I can pull my nazi mod flag out of retirement.
2002-01-22 10:44:43 AM  
im thining of picking up on this idea and having people pay at auction to cook at my restaurant, so much cheaper then paying labor
2002-01-22 10:51:13 AM  
This is the kind of thing that Chomsky warned us about!
2002-01-22 10:53:10 AM  
...and the slippery slope continues. WTF? First a day, then a month. Are the mods getting burned out, or something?
2002-01-22 10:53:57 AM  
I rule Fark every month.
2002-01-22 10:58:24 AM  
this is gonna get expensive. good for drew.
2002-01-22 11:01:16 AM  
You guys are seriously going to miss me when all my posts get deleted for a month.
2002-01-22 11:01:31 AM  
I'll sell Fark for $10mil. Paypal accepted.
2002-01-22 11:01:59 AM  
Im with Ayesha... scary.
2002-01-22 11:02:52 AM  
Btw there seems to be some confusion as to what moderators do.

Rule Fark for a Day means you get to pick articles.

Moderate Fark for a month means you get to delete comments.

Moderators don't pick or delete articles, and rule fark for a dayers don't delete comments.
2002-01-22 11:02:56 AM  
Drew: Can we pay you in Euros? Put on your magnetic underwear.
2002-01-22 11:03:55 AM  
Drew: How about pennies? I'm counting.

2002-01-22 11:04:34 AM  
How much for 'Rule Drew for a Day?'
2002-01-22 11:04:56 AM  
Whatever works for you guys, Drew. You have my support...but not my bid. No way I could have that much time on my hands!
2002-01-22 11:07:47 AM  
If I was independantly wealthy, I would buy FARK then make Fb- my assistant moderator so he could delete WC, Rei, and Harmonia for life. Man i can't stand there constant b!tching.
2002-01-22 11:08:46 AM  
I might do it if I could not only delete posts, but edit them too...
2002-01-22 11:08:54 AM  
This has the potential to get extremely nasty.
2002-01-22 11:10:32 AM  
How much for "Be Fb-'s father for the day?"
2002-01-22 11:13:23 AM  
Fb- you would have to ask Heather (i.e. Mrs. Drew) for that.

And Whippah, i think if you are a moderator you are kind of undeleteable. If someone deletes your posts you can "undelete" them. Of course, that doesn't stop another mod from comming along and whacking them once again. Nor stop one of the admins from whacking your Mod. status if you are too nasty. So, there you go being a moderator is EXACTLY what everyone wants!
2002-01-22 11:14:34 AM  
HaTeMoNgEr: There aleady is a donation fund, but from the sounds of it, there aren't enough donations in it (nor apparently enough people who even know about it)
2002-01-22 11:14:47 AM  
I love being whacked with the cluebat!
2002-01-22 11:17:07 AM  
If only I had the time to rule fark for a day. Downside, I'd have to get a e-bay account. (shiver) Mod would be fun, but I have nothing against anyone. Except Drew. His posts must be removed.
2002-01-22 11:17:38 AM  
I would do it, if the mod had some magical way of unscrambling MyTwoCents' picture. har har har
2002-01-22 11:18:12 AM  
I'll sell Fark for $10mil. Paypal accepted.

If someone drove down to Kentucky and gave you $10,000.00 US Dollars (cash) what would you say?
2002-01-22 11:18:32 AM  
it's listed between the remote fart machine and hot sheep arse pictures. I better get biddin'! On the Fark thing... yeah, that's right.....
2002-01-22 11:25:17 AM  
Good bye sweet fark
2002-01-22 11:31:21 AM  
Fb- as moderator? Oh yeah!
2002-01-22 11:34:32 AM  
This might even go for more than 'Rule FARK for a day'. But 20 bucks says they lose their priviledge because they're an asshole. Seriously, how many people are actually not assholes on the threads?
2002-01-22 11:39:00 AM  
I dont think I could handle FB- as a moderator.. I wouldnt get any work done.... His posts usually crack me up..

do mods have the access to edit post too:) If so.. this could get fun...
